We were disappointed to find out the Constitution is closed Monday & Tuesday during winter months. There was no reference to these hour on the website or Yelp! Profile We were very disappointed. Of course, the gift shop was open.

I thought museums were supposed to be places of interest with interesting exhibits and artefacts pertaining to the subject. If that is what you expect you won’t find it here. There were a lot of “toy” boats - why? Who wants to see some old bloke making toys, how sad a life must he have had to be doing this. It should be called the museum of old blokes making toys

Visited family in MA over the Christmas Holidays. We came here for the afternoon. Checked out the museum & the ship. Would definitely recommend.

My friend and I came to Boston for a girls trip and stopped by to see this. Not only is it amazing to be standing in that boat but the Naval Staff members are phenomenal. For a fee you can purchase a flag and they will help you fly it on the mass of the ship!

We traveled with a small child and a group of adults. We all found the museum very fun! There was lots of activities to do for everyone. The ship itself was nice to walk around and explore too.
